Scott Hall

I Didn't Choke My Girlfriend!

Wrestling legend Scott Hall claims police completely overreacted when they arrested him for domestic abuse on Friday -- insisting he never ONCE got violent with his girlfriend.

Scott's lawyer Loredana Nesci tells TMZ, Scott did NOT choke out his girlfriend Lisa Howell -- even though Lisa told cops the wrestling legend grabbed her by the throat in a drunken fit of rage outside his Florida home, and tried to pull her out of her car.

Cops claim they observed multiple signs of injury on Lisa's body that were consistent with her story -- including red marks around her neck -- so they placed Scott under arrest.

But Scott's lawyer tells us, "The police arrested Mr. Hall against the wishes of Ms. Howell, who insisted that the argument did not result in violence. Ms. Howell claims that there was no physical abuse."

Lisa has refused to press charges -- but the lawyer's statement contradicts the arrest report ... which states Scott did get violent.

The lawyer adds, Scott and Lisa "have a peaceful and amicable relationship."

So typical of a domestic violence case when the victim recants and returns to the home - until the next time - IF she lives to tell about it. Very sad. Her family and friends better stay reeeal close to her; she needs them.

He probably threw a toothpick in her face and said "Hey, yo!"

She's so full of crap. Yeah, he never touched her so did she put those strangle marks on her neck herself? No, but when he strangles her to death no one will care because it's what she wanted. Stupid ho.
